### Berkeley theme

HI guys

I use fo my presentation the Berkeley theme, but it seems to work as you can see from the image below but into the code TexStudio underlines a error in the following way

Option dash for package beamerouterthemesidebar. \useoutertheme[right]{sidebar}

Instead, using AnnArbor theme and putting the \useoutertheme[right]{sidebar} under \usetheme{AnnArbor} it works without errors

Hi,

the Berkeley theme already loads the sidebar with default options, that's why you get an option clash when you load it again with a different option.

Here is a quick fix - the first line:

\PassOptionsToPackage{right}{beamerouterthemesidebar}\documentclass{beamer}\usetheme{Berkeley}\begin{document}\frame{test}\end{document}

Please always post real code as code in text, as I did. From a screenshot I cannot copy and test the code.

Try it with Berlin. The sidebar is shown:

\documentclass{beamer}\usetheme{Berlin}\useoutertheme[right]{sidebar} \begin{document}\frame{test}\end{document}

But first really think about if you need foot lines, header, sidebar at all. They take space, they show redundant information, I doubt that the audience reads the such sidebar, header or footer all the time. It takes space away that you could use.

I prefer themes without fancy stuff that requires space. For example, when I have big images or screenshots or long code. Recently I used the metropolis beamer theme. All available space is for content.
